Our 2017 season has come to an end this week. The Verdi family wants to thank all of our clients, returning and new, that fished with us this season. I look forward to fishing with all of you in 2018. My family would like to thank Jarvis Marine Inc for keep the boat running all season. A big thanks to Tony’s Bait and Tackle for keeping my bait and gear in tip top shape. Also a special thanks to the Beach Haven Yacht Club for the use of the dock and fuel station.
Today, we had Tom and the SDR Trucking crew on board. Left the dock in the dark knowing we had to be way south before the massive crowd of boats got there. Made it to the grounds and found some fish at first light and quickly put two unders and one over in the box. Thought it was going to go off but, within an hour, there were 1000 boats around. Made a move way north to find three more unders. Lots of ground covered but these guys did an awesome job landing each hook up.
Nick and Nick grabbed some seats on the open boat. Another great day on the waters off LBI took some time to get them going but we found them. I just wish it was closer to home. Four unders, two overs and several released.
Today I had Jim, John, Johnny and Nick out For some LBI Striper Fishing. Made our first trip out of LEI and made quick work of finding fish and getting our limit of unders. We even had two overs all by 9:30. Played catch and release for the next 1.5 hours and headed home with tired arms.
Today, we had Dave and Nick out for a quick run. Made the call to go north and found two unders and an over. This was our last run out of Barnegat inlet. We will make the remaining trip for the year out of my home inlet of LEI.
